This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
I wonder if anyone has come across this problem in Manning's book. In listing 4.8 on p53, the line URL url = context.getResource("files/test"); doesn't work quite well. In fact, you have to add a "/" before "files/test" to make it work. Another problem is that by this way, it will always download the jar file by the name of the servlet itself. If you want to specify the name of the download file, you have to add another line: res.setHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=test.jar"); after line: res.setContentType("application/octet-stream"); Can anyone tell me the difference between: res.setContentType("application/octet-stream"); and res.setContentType("application/jar"); Thanks a lot.
